"The most useful guide to getting things done since Getting Things Done ."
--Adam Grant, author of Give and Take

Learn how small behavioral changes can lead to major personal and professional self-improvement

Whether trying to lose weight, save money, get organized, or advance on the job, we're always setting goals and making resolutions, but rarely following through on them. According to longtime Wall Street technology strategist Caroline Arnold, the "big push" strategy of the New Year's resolution is designed to fail, because it broadly pits our limited willpower stores against an autopilot of entrenched behaviors and attitudes that is far more powerful. To change ourselves permanently, we need to focus our self-control on precise behavioral targets and overwhelm them. Small Move, Big Chang e is Arnold's guide to turning broad personal goals into meaningful and discrete behavioral changes that lead to permanent improvement. Providing scores of engaging real-world examples and new scientific findings, she shows us that while the traditional resolution promises rewards on a distant "someday," microresolutions work because they reward us today by instantly altering our routines and, ultimately, ourselves.

Makes so much sense. Going to put some of the words into practice. Seems like making BIG goals into a 'staircase analogy'. Take it one step at a time, you'll be at the top before you know it. Try zipping up to the top, in a rush, going three/four steps at a time, doubt you'll make it far without tumbling back down to the bottom of the staircase......
